Rebinding the FretBoard w/o hurting the finish


Recommended Posts

Hi All

As posted previously, I am replacing my truss rod. I had followed the tutorial on steaming off a fretboard (which works great btw) and I am putting in a stewart-macdonald 'hot-rod'. Now, when I get the fretboard glued back on, I am getting some ebony binding to replace the plastic crud I took off (well melted really)

My problem is that my brother just did a freakin sweet paint job on the guitar, and that includes the neck. My concern is when I glue the binding back on, I will likely have to sand or router the binding to get it flush with the side of the neck. What I need to know is, how do I do that w/o wrecking the new finish? Am I going to have to beg for another coat of paint afterwards? Or is there some fancy trick to doing it? (I doubt the ability of masking tape to do the job)
